We are so excited to get this Vintage Summer Quilt Along kicked off on April 1, 2019!
I think it is perfect timing for this Quilt Along as it wraps up in early May and in plenty of time to use your quilt all summer long!
You may be asking, "What is a Quilt Along?" In our case it is just a group of people who will be sewing the same quilt at the same time and posting our progress on Instagram or other social media! It's always fun to motivate each other and see all the finished blocks popping up!
We will have a basic timeline, but don't worry too much about the timeline it will just be used to keep us all going at a steady rate! Feel free to sew more or fewer blocks than we suggest each week! Again, the timeline is just a suggestion!
Each Friday during the sew along Erica Arndt, (the designer of the Vintage Summer Quilt Pattern) and I will be selecting winners for giveaways using the hashtag #vintagesummerquiltalong . The only thing you will need to do in order to be entered for the giveaway that week is post a picture of your progress and use that hashtag.
For this specific Quilt Along, we have to be able to see your photos on Instagram through this hashtag in order for you to be selected as a winner!
The timeline for the Vintage Summer Quilt Along is as follows:
Decide on the fabric line you would like to use and what prints you would like for each block. Or order the kit from us to make it look like Erica's quilt!
April 8-14: Truck and Surfboard Blocks
April 15-21: Palm Tree and Beach Ball Blocks
April 22-28: Pinwheel Sashing Blocks
April 29-May 5: Assembling Top and Borders
May 6 -12: Quilting, Binding, and Quilt Along Wrap Up!
You may finish this quilt in a week or even in a weekend if you'd like! As long as you have a photo of the blocks for that week, you will be able to qualify for the giveaway of the week!
Keep in mind also, if you do happen to finish your quilt early you may choose to make pillows, placemats, etc. with these cute truck blocks! Erica has some awesome suggestions for doing these projects in her Vintage Fall pattern available both in our shop and her website as well!
We are looking forward to such a fun Vintage Summer Quilt Along with everyone!
